Superfund Remedy Report, 16th Edition
EPA prepares the Superfund Remedy Report to provide information and analyses on remedies EPA selected to address contamination at Superfund National Priorities List and Superfund Alternative Approach sites. This report is the latest in a series, prepared since 1991, on Superfund remedy selection. The latest edition focuses on the analysis of Superfund remedial actions selected in fiscal years 2015, 2016 and 2017.

The data that forms the basis of the analyses contained in SRR 16th Edition can be found at Superfund Data and Reports by downloading Contaminant of Concern Data for Decision Documents by Media, FY 1982-2017 and Remedy Component Data for Decision Documents by Media, FY 1982-2017.

Funding Opportunity
Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences intends to publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit applications for the Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program, referred to as Superfund Research Program (SRP) Centers. SRP Center grants will support problem-based, solution-oriented research Centers that consist of multiple, integrated projects representing both the biomedical and environmental science and engineering disciplines; as well as cores tasked with administrative (which includes research translation), data management and analysis, community engagement, research experience and training coordination, and research support functions. The scope of the SRP Centers includes: (1) advanced techniques for the detection, assessment, and evaluation of the effect on human health of hazardous substances; (2) methods to assess the risks to human health presented by hazardous substances; (3) methods and technologies to detect hazardous substances in the environment; and (4) basic biological, chemical, and physical methods to reduce the amount and toxicity of hazardous substances. The Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects/cores. The FOA is expected to be published in August 2020 with an expected application due date in February 2021.

Updated Tool
Spreadsheets for Environmental Footprint Analysis (SEFA) Version 3.0
EPA developed the set of analytical workbooks known as "SEFA" to help remedial project managers and other decision-makers estimate the environmental footprint of a cleanup project at a detailed level. As an Excel-based tool, SEFA uses site-specific input and automated calculations to quantify 21 metrics such as the amounts of energy used onsite (BTUs), onsite emission of hazardous air pollutants (pounds), used potable water sourced from public water supplies (gallons), refined materials used onsite (tons), and onsite waste that is recycled or reused (percent). In November 2019, EPA released Version 3.0 of SEFA. The update reflects new default footprint conversion factors for additional materials, diesel or gasoline engines of various sizes, and laboratory analyses. SEFA output enables decision-makers to determine which cleanup activities drive the environmental footprint and to accordingly adjust the project parameters in ways that reduce the footprint and improve the environmental outcome.
